BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The U.S. military said on Thursday it had launched its biggest air offensive in Iraq since the 2003 invasion of the country.

A military statement said the operation involving more than 50 aircraft and 1,500 Iraqi and U.S. troops as well as 200 tactical vehicles targeted suspected insurgents operating area near the town of Samarra, 100 km (60 miles) north of Baghdad.

Of course they still haven't learned the lessons of the past. You cannot defeat an insurgencyy from the air, the US tried for 10 yeasr in Vietnam, it didn't work. Now with the Golden Dome shrine destroyed in Sammara, its residents will die as innocents in a bombing campaign.

Just where are those flowers and chocolates?
